VPN on Shared Firewall??
Posted on 2009-05-22
I have a dedicated server located behind my hosting companies shared firewall. I require a VPN setting up to another server and wondered if it is possible for a hosting company to configure this on their shared firewall. If they do say they could do it is there any security risks involved in havving a dedicated VPN tunnel on a shared firewall? Or can it be locked down securely?
I wanted to ask this question here first before I contact the hosting company as I think the company will just try to sell me a dedicated firewall without any consideration.
